Fodor's Review

This clubby spot, whose name means "carousel" in Italian, was created by the late Prince Dimitri Kunz d'Asburgo Lorena, and is now expertly run by Soldano and Dimitri, his friendly twin sons. In perfect English they will describe favorite dishes from the constantly changing menu, which regularly has terrific vegetarian and vegan options. Any meal that does not include truffles is significantly less expensive than those that do. For dessert, this might be the only show in town with a sublime tiramisù and a wonderfully gooey Sacher torte.
